NESTLÉ Munch launched its new campaign on digital platforms followed by television. The brand urges the its target audience to claim their stage, to sport and embrace their flaws and their passions and be unapologetic about whom they are. The Longer version of the TV ad was posted on the NESTLÉ MUNCH Facebook page, YouTube channel and Twitter on the 10th of January and has received an enthusiastic response from consumers. With over 3 million views on Facebook and YouTube, this ad will definitely start a new trend amongst the youth. The music has been a great hit, with over one lakh downloads within two weeks of its launch.
The protagonist in this new film by NESTLÉ MUNCH is the confident, happy-go-lucky College Student played by Sushant Singh Rajput. From a street scene, talking to tourists in ‘Broken English’, to trying to impress a girl in the college library with the same ‘tootaphoota English’, the film showcases this common angst among a large section of our country’s youth in a light-hearted and comical manner. All of this culminates into a big fail at the ‘Romeo and Juliet’ audition, where the lines that he utter are obviously ones that Shakespeare never wrote.
A dejected hero walks out of the theatre, crunches loudly into a NESTLÉ MUNCH 4X4, which gets everyone’s attention. He now has a ‘Manch’ (stage) to showcase his talent; he uses this to fantastic effect by breaking into the very catchy ‘MUNCHification’ song in ‘Broken English’, catapulting himself to stardom in the process.
This new commercial inspires us to embrace the beautiful little flaws and imperfections within all of us by parading them out in the open- Simply put, Nestlé MUNCH khao, Apne Manch pe Aao!
